Pope Says Organ Trafficking is Morally Wrong

I still can’t believe that this is controversial among some Catholics, but the Pope has said that buying and selling organs for transplant is morally illicit:
“The problem of availability of organs for transplant, unfortunately, isn’t theoretical but dramatically real,” the pontiff said in a speech to participants of a Vatican-sponsored meeting on organ donations.
But any “buying and selling of organs … would go against the meaning of donation” and would be “morally illicit,” the pope said.
